St Mel's Primary School students Chelsea Campisi, 7, Tess Maloney, 7, and Remi Serra, 7, with their secret purchases for their mums.


St Mel’s Primary School students spent yesterday morning browsing through gifts for their mothers at a special Mother’s Day stall.

Market organiser and parent Jenny Serra said the market gave students a chance to spend up to $10 on gifts in an environment that mirrored a real shop.


‘‘The kids just love it — they take so long to pick their gifts,’’ she said.


‘‘They buy what they think their mother loves, not what we advise them.’’


Year 5 student Tania Al-Kaaby said she was looking forward to giving her mum a present she made in art class.


‘‘I made a picture of me and mum and I’m also going to give her something I made out of Loom Bands,’’ she said.


‘‘I love my mum because she loves me.’’


Tomorrow will be special for Year 1 student Sam Portea, 6, because his mother is also celebrating her birthday.


‘‘We’re taking her out for coffee and tea after breakfast,’’ he said.


He said he loved his mother for just being there.


‘‘She helps me with everything,’’ he said.


Year 2 student Tayla Cross said she would be surprising her mum with a Mother’s Day breakfast.


She said she her mother was special because she loved her.


Year 1 student Fatema Alatheiry said her mother was special because she read to her at night.


‘‘And she gives me lots of hugs,’’ she said.
